Mrs. Doubtfire Reviews

The greater story is sacrificed for schticky gags about a guy dressing as an old woman.

Although overly sappy in places and probably 20 minutes too long, this Robin Williams-in-drag vehicle provides the comic a slick surface for doing his shtick, within a story possessing broad family appeal.

Sit-com stuff, then, with laboured farcical interludes, and a mushy post-feminist sensibility. Funny notwithstanding.

Mrs. Doubtfire is by no means a bad movie-going experience and still holds up as vintage Robin Williams, but it's certainly an odd idea the more you think about it.

It is what it is, and frankly I don't like it.

Clumsy, but you can't go wrong with Robin Williams in drag.

Rousing comic portrait of a dad who loves his kinds more than anything else in the world.

An overactive, cheeky costume comedy highlighted by the inspired zaniness of Robin Williams

The dress, the mask and Mrs. Doubtfire's gentility are inherently limiting, but nothing holds Mr. Williams back when he's on a roll.

The audience will likely enjoy the good stuff so much that they will easily overlook the film's weaknesses.

The film is not as amusing as the premise, and there were long stretches when I'd had quite enough of Mrs. Doubtfire.
